Centre closing eye to looming power crisis, just like oxygen shortage: Delhi deputy CM Manish Sisodia
NEW DELHI: Deputy CM Manish Sisodia on Sunday alleged that the central go nment was “turning a blind eye” towards the coal and energy crisis in the same way it “ran away” from its responsibilities when the country was facing an oxygen crisis during the second Covid wave.
“While other state go nments are planning long power cuts, the power department of Delhi go nment is also kee a close watch on the situation. If the coal stock required to generate power at plants allocated to the capital is available for less than 24 hours, outages will be planned,” said Sisodia.
Power plants within the city are largely gas-based and currently there is no challenge to gas availability.
Talking to reporters, Sisodia said, “While the country is facing a coal and energy crisis, the central go nment, instead of paying attention to the issue, is running away from its responsibility and shamelessly branding the genuine appeals by state go nments as rumours. Union energy minister RK Singh is saying that there is no coal crisis. It is extremely unfortunate that he has maintained such an irresponsible attitude.”
On Saturday, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal had said that Delhi could face a power crisis and sought PM Narendra Modi’s intervention in making coal and gas available to the generation plants.
Sisodia said Singh had, instead, suggested that the Delhi CM should not have written to the Prime Minister. “The go nments of Delhi, Andhra Pradesh, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, among others, have warned the Centre about an incoming crisis, many power plants have been closed and the states are planning power cuts,” he added.
Hahaha, the oxygen audit showed Delhi exaggerated as usual and then had 30 % oxygen to give away to other states! Nautanki
The irresponsible go nment who led the mismanagement of covid situation in Delhi and made situation more worse making comment on Central governmnet responsibility. Even Bihar with less infrastrucure handled covid situation and oxygen demand much better than Delhi.
AAP had created global panic on oxygen, medicine, vaccine, doctors, ration - all in all they know only how to create fake panic and never work genuniely and harmoniously.
We all know how AAP has mastered the art of creating panic in society. On top of this - media gives coverage to such demands. Delhi go nment has already shut down thermal power plants in Delhi so for whom they are asking coal? One should remember that power demand in winter decreases as compared to summer.
spreading rumours is in AAP DNA
AAP have done nothing but go on shirking responsibility.

Oxygen shortage due to four times demand from Delhi Govt.
The headless chicken Sisodiya wants the Central go nment should do everything, then why do we need a state go nment?
AAP is a habitual offender when it comes to spreading false rumours, creating undue panic, n blaming the Centre at the drop of a hat every time they feel there's an iota of a crisis looming. They themselves will do nothing just will scream n blame Modi.
AAP really needs to shut up with the blame game.they didnt do anything , then blamed everyone for theor failure. Usual dr. Useless
On one side, ask for help and on othef hurl abuses.... thats PAAP for you
Forget power Prect Women in delhi first, one women raped everyday despite 1 billion CCTV. AAP MLA accused of rape is roaming free
No one is closing eye but what will happen by creating panic in public eyes ….we are a nation of 130 cr…imagine even 50% running in panic…there is coal or power shortage globally and it will take some time…lets not unnecessarily create panic and try to solve the problem rather than making foolish statements
Well you could have bought coal from anywhere in the world and run your own powerplant and if you want clean energy then just stop using coal. Oh Sorry.. Well you are giving free ircity, so you have no money to build any power producing plant.

Why do we need such state go nments who blame everything on the centre, and keep wng through doling out freebies, which thus seems not belong to them at all ...
Whenever I see this guy opening his mouth, I think he just spews venom. My personal feeling - whenever I just see this guy, it fills me up with rage and hate. How can a person be so irritable, irresponsible and shoot and scoot type.
Playing dirty po itics to be in power. Shame on them.
These aaptards hv nothing else to do except cry..... why r they sitting in power when everything is to be done by centre
Make Sisodia PM of India
